Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar is under fire for anti-Semitic comments.
Throughout this train wreck, the Democrat Party has been mostly silent.
But a number of top Democrats just said something about her that will cause Trump to win re-election in 2020.
Democrats are stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Rep. Ilhan Omar.
On the one hand, with her being a woman and a Muslim refugee from Somalia, she checks the diversity boxes they insist on shoving down Americans’ throats.
But on the other hand, she has ties to organizations close to radical Islamic terrorists, and makes anti-Semitic comments of her own.
And in response what she said, the top Democrats running for President are being forced to comment.
But they are refusing to condemn Omar and her comments.
Instead, Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders put out statements merely saying anti-Semitism is bad.
As reported by the Daily Caller:
“2020 presidential hopefuls Sen. Kamala Harris of California, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont each released statements Wednesday addressing the backlash Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is facing for her allegedly anti-Semitic statements.
All of them condemned anti-Semitism but also explained that criticizing Israel should not be conflated with anti-Semitism. None of them criticized Omar’s comments either.
Omar ruffled feathers with comments she made last week regarding the “dual loyalty” to Israel that she believes members of Congress are expected to have. Many of her colleagues on both sides of the aisle have condemned her statements, including some members of the Foreign Affairs Committee on which she sits.”
These statements do nothing to address the problem at hand.
And mirror exactly the Democrat Party’s response.
Instead of taking Omar’s comments head-on, they are pushing a resolution to condemn anti-Semitism and Muslim-directed hate.
While the comments are coming from one specific member, they refuse to mention her.
They aren’t even removing her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which is responsible for dealing with Israel on a daily basis.
But President Trump and his allies are holding Omar’s feet to the fire.
Trump is showing leadership in this situation, while Democrats are showing that they support party loyalty over everything.
Do you think Rep. Omar should lose her spot on the House Foreign Affairs Committee?
